New Benefits from National Connection!

The National Connection team is proud to announce that access to all of the National Connection benefits will soon be expanded to select senior staff positions, at no additional charge. By inviting senior staff to access to the National Connection’s information and networking services, it is our hope that your district can research, collaborate, and accomplish your collective goals. If you would follow this link to a survey that will identify those individuals in your district in these new roles, the National Connection team can then use that information to assist them with login instructions, etc. We know that some districts do not necessarily have one staff member dedicated exclusively to these titles, so in that case, it would be helpful if you provided the name of a staff member that would be best suited to receive communications relating to that topic.
